Kevin Durant seems to have a knack for joining the best teams in the NBA. After leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder, KD decided to take his talents to the 73-9 Golden State Warriors. Which, in all honesty, ruined the balance of the league for a couple of years.
Following his stint with the Dubs, Durant decided to form a super team with Kyrie Irving and James Harden while donning the jersey of the Brooklyn Nets. Unlike his tenure with the Warriors, Durant couldn't win even a single ring with the Nets.
Now, KD has once again decided to start another new chapter of his career at the age of 33. He has requested a trade out of the Brooklyn Nets months after signing a four-year contract with the franchise.
That's not the surprising part. Many had predicted this could happen after Harden forced a trade this season and Kyrie Irving missed a lot of games. But what they didn't expect was that KD would name his two preferred destinations, the respective number one seeds of the Western and Eastern Conference.
Yes, KD wants out of Brooklyn and wants to join either the Phoenix Suns or the Miami Heat. It feels like Durant is once again ready to take on the role of villain in the NBA. But that doesn't matter to the Suns or Heat fans.
Regardless of the team that he decided to join between them, he is thinking about forming the brand new Big 3 in the NBA. Upon hearing that, fans have already started to debate which potentially Big 3 will be better, given KD gets his wish fulfilled.
Most fans believe that if KD actually gets traded to the Heat, that Big 3 will be better than the Suns' Big 3.
But the catch is that neither of the two teams can realistically trade for KD without giving up at least one of their stars. After all, Durant is one of the best players in NBA history and has four years left on his contract.
